Experiencing Digital Solutions for Smart Cities at SCEWC 2018

Smart cities are unique in that they require digital solutions that work together across infrastructure, safety and mobility. Hexagon strives to create digital solutions that improve productivity and quality over these industries to ultimately create autonomous connected ecosystems (ACE).

Specific innovations from Hexagon Geospatial strengthen the entire smart city process by storing and distributing data and translating that data into action-specific information. We recently attended Smart City Expo World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain, November 13 – 15, where we were able to showcase our latest digital solutions for making smart cities a reality.

Hexagon Geospatial exhibited and presented on the following digital solutions for Smart Cities:

  • M.App Enterprise – Helping agencies address their location-based challenges with a powerful platform that helps monitor assets, evaluate changes, and take action.
  • M.App Analyzer Suite – Creating information dashboards that let non-programmers interact with geospatial and business data to dynamically explore the data in meaningful ways.
  • Mobile Alert – Mobile device crowdsourcing provides resource-thin public works agencies with a reliable, cost-effective source of actionable information, while also providing citizens an avenue to contribute to their community and government.
  • ERDAS IMAGINE – Helping government agencies make sense of the influx of data, identifying which images need further analysis and which can be safely archived for later with machine deep learning.
  • LuciadFusion and LuciadLightspeed – handling a data set from Sigmaspace’s Single Photon Lidar Sensor consisting of 200 million points. LuciadLightspeed connects to LuciadFusion serving the point clouds. GPU accelerated filtering and styling allows to analyze the human terrain layer and discover man-made features.
  • Cadaster system for the city of Bilbao, in Spain, based on LuciadRIA and LuciadFusion, developed by Geograma.
  • LuciadLightspeed – connecting to Airbus Pixelfactory reality meshes outputed in OSGB format, showing automatic handling of LOD, measurements, and integration with other data sets such as point clouds in the city of Marseille.

On Tuesday, November 13, Product Marketing Manager, Nele Coghe participated in a presentation on IoT and disruptive technologies for cities. She discussed Hexagon Geospatial’s capability to fuse multiple data sources into a single digital reality. She went into detail on how sensors measure the world with unprecedented detail and accuracy – not only from space, air, and street-level, but also indoors. Then she discussed how we can take this high-res imagery, billions of points from laser scans, city- or country-wide 3D reality meshes, and outdoor and indoor panoramic images, and add real-time IoT sensor feeds into the mix to bridge the divide between the static and dynamic worlds, creating a Smart Digital Reality and enabling the dynamic use cases of tomorrow’s smart cities.

On November 14, Jose Luis Peinado participated in a tour of Hexagon’s booth at the conference where he explored how smart cities must be infinitely connected and show how 5D mapping solutions that make the digital world a physical reality.
